Posted by on December 24th 2012

The Soil Association has given evidence to the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee inquiry into Insects and Insecticides. Speaking to MPs on Wednesday 21 November policy director Peter Melchett and policy manager Emma Hockridge called on the Government to take strong action against one of the key culprits causing a catastrophic decline in bee and other pollinator numbers: neonicotinoid pesticides.
